Week 10 at New Orleans Saints
Jordan Reed returned to action last week against the Packers, but only caught one pass for three yards and was targeted just twice. Reed was returning from injury, so it’s possible the team was being cautious with him. Not getting hurt was definitely an accomplishment for him though, and he should be in line for more action this week.
The Saints defense ranks 19th in aFPA to opposing tight ends, so if Reed does get an increase in targets, there’s upside for him in a pretty good matchup. He’s a boom-or-bust option because he’s liable to get injured at any moment, and he’s also vying with Ross Dwelley for snaps at the tight end spot, but Reed has the ability to lead the team in receiving if they end up down a bunch of wide receivers once again. Consider him a desperation start with upside in deep leagues.
